Malala Yousafzai

Malala Yousafzai

by Cathleen Small




One day on her ride home from school, Malala Yousafzai's bus was pulled over by two men. They were looking for the girl who had been protesting the Taliban's harsh laws against education for young Pakistani women. When they'd found their target, they drew their weapons and fired. Miraculously, Malala lived. Despite this attempt on her life, Malala continues to stand up for justice for her divided country, becoming a symbol for children's advocacy throughout the world.
